After a design makeover, Mastercard just got really cool again
Pentagram partner Michael Bierut says: “I’d like to say the system is really complicated but really, you’ve got two colours, two circles, one word and everything comes out of that. I think it’s excitingly clear and simple in a world that too often presents itself as hopelessly complicated.
There will be lots of groups and agencies working on the rollout so planning for that is in progress, and one of the great things about working with an understood set of visual cues [like the circles] is that while the new logo looks sensational, it doesn’t make the old logo look wrong or unfamiliar.”
What do you think about the refreshed look?
